We have a special guest here today with us. My sister-in-law, Ellie!! Ellie is a Weight Loss Coach who focuses on Low Glycemic foods. She made a fabulous Cauliflower Crust Hawaiin Pizza. Take it away Ellie!
I have never written a blog before. Or really anything that has been put out for the public, so bear with me. Let me introduce myself, my name is Ellie and I am the talented Dee’s sister-in-law. I am far from a foodie, though I do like to eat. Ironically, I am actually a Weight Loss Coach, so needless to say, many of the recipes Dee posts, though decadent I am sure, don’t quite fit with the Low Glycemic Impact lifestyle that I live and teach to my clients.
So, how did I come about to be a guest blogger?? I sent Dee a Low GI recipe I thought she would be interested in and she suggested I make it and write about it. Huh? Not really a fabulous cook, nor writer. However, I am always up for a new challenge, so I said to myself, “what the heck”.
I will be the first to admit that my biggest challenge with Low GI eating for me is that I only like a limited variety of veggies. Kind of why I sent her the recipe…cauliflower. I HATE cauliflower. The taste, the texture, the SMELL. Everything. But, she put it back on me. Like I said, a challenge. So, I made it.
I was nervous when I took that first bite, but I was pleasantly surprised, it was pretty good. I would warn you, don’t expect it to taste like pizza crust, the texture is different, but you really can’t taste the cauliflower. My 5 year old even wolfed it down and had seconds!
So, before I sent this off to Dee, I had to use up the rest of the head of cauliflower in my fridge, so I made myself another pizza for lunch today. Can I just say, OMG!! This time instead of going the traditional route, I looked in my fridge to see what toppings I had. Found some onions, green and red peppers and Mexican Cheese. Well, I bet you can guess what I did! Grabbed me a can of refried beans and made me a Mexican Pizza!! Ole! Seriously, did I just eat cauliflower?? Cause I did not taste it.
Next up, Buffalo Cauliflower “Wings”. Maybe Dee will let me blog that one too!
This pizza looks fabulous! I am so intrigued. Thanks for sharing Ellie. You are more than welcome to share your Buffalo Cauliflower "Wings"!
